Especially if, there is a general lot shot
I am still new to the whole genealogy thing. I have only been doing for about 15 years. I am hoping that my children will continue the search.
Photography is relaxing for me...so I take photos and add them. There is cemetery that I am working on that across the street from my children's school. If you want one of my photos, that is fine, but I DO WANT CREDIT. I however would prefer that they are not added to Ancestry. It is more that you might credit me, but the person that acquires it from you might not.
PLEASE -Turn on your messages. You are missing out on A LOT of info that people may want to share with you.
Please remember, when you start researching a new geographic area, that those living in the area, probably know more than you, but there are some that don't. Like St. Louis City and St. Louis County are very separate, but very connected. Please look at an actual map that has city and county boarders, that is dated for that era, NOT a current map. For example, much of what is warehouses now by river, used to be housing.

St. Louis Calvary Cemetery
General Calvary Map
Myself and several others, including Elaine and Sharon, do most of the Photo requests for the St. Louis Calvary Cemetery. We share a google document to do this. I typically look at every request. Which means - I will check to see if is duplicate, see if they are really buried their (see the archdiocese website) and then enter it onto the spreadsheet. Which is sorted usually by sections.
Sections 5 & 16 do not have maps, so those have to be walked, but they were VERY sparsely marked. And none of us like them because so few are marked, so it actually makes it very difficult.
Section 10 is done, there are only maybe 20 stones.
Then we each have our favorite sections to do.
Most, but not all, have already been added into Find a grave by TVFTH. BTW, they are terrible spellers, so be creative. It is a Very large cemetery, so we do sometime wait until there are more than one request in that section.
If you have any questions about St Louis Calvary I will be happy to try to answer it. If I don't know, I will try to find the answer for you.
Happy Hunting :)

Thanks for the effort. I think I may have found the correct one in my continued search, but your information definitely helped.
|Steven Keller||Thank you!|
Thank you for the pictures of the Klevorn plots at Calvary. Too bad there are no headstones. I'm going to a Klevorn reunion in St Louis in July and will bring up the fact that several Klevorns at Calvary need some sort of memorial.
God bless you!
